Luana is great - really poikute, friendly and respectful of our home. A great clean and would highly recommend :)
Really satisfied with the amount of work that was done within the time frame. It's going to be a great help having Engin keep the flat clean every week!
Natalie is excellent at her job - thorough, with a keen eye for detail, super professional, and on top of that kind! I particularly love how she subtly re-arranges items, making our home look not just cleaner but giving it a clean, tidy asthetic.
Anna consistently goes above and beyond to keep our house clean and tidy amidst the chaos of a young baby - thank you!
Camden Town
Vida was brilliant! The best cleaner I have had in such a long time, and she was so kind and considerate of the fact I was on meetings the whole time!
Fantastic job, very friendly and very thorough. We definitely recommend her. Thank you again, we are very happy.
Efficient and friendly. Work also completed to a good standard. Would definately have Maria back.
Finsbury Park
This is the second time Roxanna has cleaned for us and both experiences we great, she's friendly and professional and leaves our apartment looking wonderful
Andreea arrived early to her appointment- she was polite, respectful, efficient and did a great job! She even stayed an additional few minutes at the end to make sure everything is tidied and left spotless. I would highly recommend her service, and would be hiring her again myself.

“She was fantastic. What I am not happy about is that none of the information I provided you your company in terms of what I expected cleaned was relayed to her. This is wrong. A cleaner should understand when ovens, windows etc are requested for cleaning. Poor management on Housekeep part..”

Local information about Islington

Islington is inner-London's most densely populated borough, with the 200,000 residents who call it home crammed into less than 6 square miles that extend from Crouch Hill in the north, to Farringdon in the South, Canonbury in the east and King's Cross in the west.

Islington incorporates the postcode areas N1, N4, N5, N6, N7, N8, N16, N19, EC1, EC2, NW5 and WC1 and is serviced by multiple tube and rail stations including Tufnell Park, Archway, Upper Holloway, Crouch Hill, Finsbury Park, Arsenal, Drayton Park, Holloway Road, Camden Road, Angel, Highbury & Islington, Canonbury, Caledonian Road & Barnsbury, Essex Road, Old Street and Farringdon.

Islington is known for its Victorian and Georgian townhouses set on communal garden squares. The housing stock also includes many flats in the form of converted terraces, warehouse conversions and modern new-build apartments.

Housekeep cleaned its first house in Islington in 2014, and there are now hundreds of experienced domestic cleaners available in the area, including in Clerkenwell, Pentonville and Mildmay.
